This Committee also oversees a set of environmental initiatives that involve the community in environmental stewardship. The goal is to help move Canmore towards a more sustainable future with less negative impact on the environment.
On September 6, 2022 Council dissolved the committee, as an internal review found there was no longer a need for EARC to play a role in the review of environmental impact statements and assessments.
